and considered actually moving it all to the c.i.a. annex. molly henneberg is live in washington with more. >> molly: information in the form of a classified cable reviewed by fox, sent to the state department about one month before the attack. including both of those contingency plans you just listed and telling washington that the security situation is, quote, trending negatively and voicing concern over approximately ten islamic militias and al-qaeda training camps known to operate within benghazi. one republican congresswoman says the obama administration didn't pay enough attention to those warnings. >> this explains why they were talking about a spontaneous demonstration. why the administration was blaming it on a video. if they knew if the word gotten out they had been explicitly warned in this emergency meeting and this cable went to everyone they decided to do nothing for americans, four americans died and that is what the american public needs to remember. >> molly: republican senators wanted congress to get more involved. writing in a letter we believe complexity and gravity of
the cia operation house which people, i guess, didn't know was a cia operation house which is about a mile away. and they were talking and in the days leading up to this attack that maybe it was so unsafe for the ambassador to stay in this con schiewt that maybe they should just move all the operations over. this another piece of information come out in the last 24 hours. brian, each since you have been gotten, i don't even know where to start because there has been a series of other things happening where more and more warnings were sent to the state department and more and more questions, quite frankly. >> brian: what's unbelievable it stops at the white house. when all the questions come up and information broken a lot by catherine herridge and jennifer griffin they get broken and come forward in foreign policy magazine. you expect the white house take this and comment on it. it's delay of game. you get in denials an not say why these people have an agenda. you have pundits saying it's political agenda. for the lawmakers they don't. senator lindsey graham and senator john mccain who spe
for political reasons. the director of the c.i.a. and now current intelligence officials have said no. intelligence agencies changed it not the white house. i don't understand why we're even talking about this still. let's see. he said the intelligence community made substantial analytical changes with the talking points were sent to the government agency, partners for their feedback. there were no substantive changes made to the talking points after they left the intelligence community. period. another anonymous official echoed him saying they were made based on intelligence and legal purposes. first the individual about the individuals linked to al-qaeda was derived from classified sources. classified. second were so tenuous. they still are. it makes sense to be cautious before pointing fingers so you don't set off a chain of circular and self-reinforcing assumptions. third is it important to not prejudice an investigation in the early stages. representative adam schiff who we just had on yesterday from the h
this was an intelligence failure by the c.i.a. but the president is commander in chief and buck stops with him. the buck stopped with george bush after 9/11. if you are commander in chief you are responsible with what goes on with the military. having said that, i do take exception, they haven't said this but somehow barack obama knew this was going to happen and stood by and allowed it to happen. what may come may come. when you are accuse the president you are accusing him of treason. it would be hard to accuse of any president of specifically and purposely standing by and putting americans in harm's way. there a distinction to be made there. i do agree with the larger point. if we do have answers we should have them. >> that is not at all what the many response critics are saying. the intelligence failure was the explanation the administration has offered up. but it turns out the early intelligence was right. while the attack was taking place for those six hours, there were cables sent that suggest they knew this was al-qaeda related. it turns out it most certainly was. they got it right. one of rema
'm looking at what goes on in washington under the new intelligence umbrella. did the cia have something and didn't get to the nsc? do the director of intelligence been more proactive about what's going on there? >> there's a lot of angles. >> if you saw the roots of this libyan revolution, the first thing you would think about is how do we secure our people? >> right, of course. >> you say in the second term you're your own man. a lot of second terms have not gone so well. >> that's because they get used to the idea of being president. they take their eye off the ball. president reagan had iran contra in his second term, but by then jim bakker had left as white house chief of staff and went down two or three notches in the kind of people around them. that's the issue. i think the same happened with governor bush 43. he took his eye off the ball and got accustomed to thinking going his way. katrina happened in the second term, and they just are not as responsive. good folks leave. so the test for this president is given the conditions of the country, how do i get the best people in here

fox news reported last friday that officials within the cia chain of command denied repeated requests from its officers on the ground to assist in the attack and were r ordered to stand down. a senior official says there were no orders to anybody to stand down in providing support, the official insisting that the cia operators on the ground were in charge of what they did and that it was a very important consideration. >> what are you learning about how long it took the cia officer to actually respond to what was going on? >> we know a lot more know than we knew in the weeks after. there was a roughly 25-minute gap between the initial call for help from the consulate, the time that came into the officers at a nearby annex, the time the officers were in the car on the way to assist. we're told during the time they were getting their weapons loaded while others were on the foeb trying to get so-called friendlier militias to come in and assist them. >> also that officers on the ground were asking for military back-up, but the chain of demand denied those requests. >> i can't use the actu
cain knows full well there was cia engagement not just with these talking points but with the actual operation around the ambassador in benghazi. everyone knows what the real story is behind here in terms of the operation, in terms of susan rice's independence, and if you want to take a sunday show talking points performance as the measure of a secretary of state, you're on very thin ground in terms of how anyone for any position could get nominated in the future. >> let me follow this thinking here. who is going to take the bullet for what looked to be the failure to protect chris stevens? who is going to take the bullet for what looks to be a misrepresentation in real time as to what happened? who is going to pay the price? >> certainly -- >> first of all, jay go first. >> i think certainly republicans want it to be susan rice. they're essentially calling for her scalp. and you had white house press secretary jay carney out there at the same time going even farther than rice was and talking about how this was all just due to a protest and not really -- not having much to do with te

with ambassador rice, and director of the cia. significantly troubled by -- [inaudible] evidence leading up to the attack on our consulate. tried to suggest -- [inaudible] and whether ambassador rice was prepared sufficiently in order to give the american people correctly the depiction -- [inaudible] it's clear the information she gave the american people was incorrect your she said it was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by -- it was not. there was compelling evidence at the time that that was certainly not the case, including statements by libyans as well as other americans who are fully aware people don't bring rocket propelled grenades to spontaneous events. [inaudible] >> bottom line, i'm more concerned now than it was before that the explanation of a how the four americans died in libya but i think does not do justice to the reality of it. at the time and in hindsight clearly was clearly wrong. so here's the key thing. in real-time, the state now is disconnected from reality.

he was actually threatening to prosecute men and women at the cia, for example, who had implemented these policies that the justice department had said were completely legal and that had been approved by the national security council. it was at that point that my dad stood up and said, wait a second, we approved, we agreed, these were our policies and the notion that the president is now going to come in and threaten prosecution for policies that kept the nation safe is simply beyond the pale an wasn't going to sit silent for that. megyn: i want too ask you as a family member for someone who served the nation for several years as our vice president what you think the families are going through today. for all of us it's pins and needles as we wait to see who wins. what it's like for the families of the candidates. >> it's probably more intense pins and needles, just because you poured your heart and soul into these campaigns, because you feel so deeply about the issues and about the person who is on the ticket. i can remember in 2000 and 2004 you wait and you wait and you wait and th
